OUTSTANDING IMAGE QUALITY
The 20 MP Live MOS Sensor delivers rich gradations and excellent image quality, and its anti-reflective AR Coating reduces flare directly on the sensor. The 50 MP High Res Shot combines 8 shots to generate a single ultra-high res image. With a double quad-core system and dedicated AF calculation circuit, the TruePic™ VIII Image Processor easily powers the blazing sequential shooting and autofocus speeds. 4K (3840x2160) and C4K (4096x2160) video capture with a max bit rate of up to 237 Mbps is ideal for video production. And in-body 5-Axis Image Stabilization provides up to 5.5 shutter speed steps of compensation for blur-free handheld shooting.
Capturing precise moments often proves to be difficult, especially when your subject is in motion. The E-M1 Mark II’s Pro Capture Mode ensures that you catch the exact moment you want without any lag. Pro Capture starts taking and buffering a running series of full resolution JPEG / RAW images as soon as you press the shutter release button halfway. Fully press the shutter button to instantly record an image plus up to 14 previous frames. Keep the shutter button fully depressed to continue shooting. With Pro Capture’s silent electronic shutter and high speed sequential shooting, you’ll capture once-in-a-lifetime images in no time.
Whether you’re taking to the streets, traveling the world, or working in the studio, the E-M1 Mark II is built to keep you capturing great shots without worrying about your gear. It's designed to be compact and lightweight, providing easy handheld shooting with more freedom.The metal body is hermetically sealed to be splashproof, dustproof, and freezeproof down to 14°F (-10°C), so you can take advantage of every photo opportunity. The new high-capacity Li-Ion battery enables more shots on single charge plus requires significantly less charging time. And the dual card slots make it easy to backup and manage your image files.
ADVANCED IMAGING TOOLS
Silent Shutter Mode completely eliminates shutter noise and all electronic sounds, perfect for wildlife, concert halls, or other quiet environments. With the Live Composite and Live Bulb Modes, you’ll shoot beautiful nighttime compositions as you watch the image build up on the monitor, giving you full freedom of exposure adjustment.
